In a new “Anatomy of a Scene” video released by HBO, Game of Thrones fan cans get a behind-the-scenes look at the staging of Tyrion Lannister’s trial in “The Laws of Gods and Men.”
“Tyrion’s trial this season,” explains Showrunner D.B. Weiss, “creates a real rift within the Lannister family, which, on one hand, is a family full of people who are all constantly at each other’s throats and, on the other hand, committed to the legacy of the Lannister family.”
“What’s fun about the trial sequence,” says writer and co-producer Bryan Cogman, “is the scene between the family is all in what isn’t said. It was a tremendously difficult scene to get right tonally.”
“It’s a huge challenge,” says director Alik Sakharov, “simply because it’s a big set piece. Huge throne room, as you see, quite a lot of extras.”

Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9 PM ET on HBO.
